Temptalia Asks You

Do you consider yourself a makeup collector? Sure you use some of what you buy, but do you often buy just to have it in your “collection”? Do you consider what you have going an actual collection, similar to someone’s stamp collection?

So I finally decided to do a look using Dior’s Pink May Quint from their Spring 2008 collection, which is awfully pretty look at. It really does work well with the spring palette, but considering how rainy it has been, I felt like I needed to darken it somehow. I decided on darker lips, which was a mistake, as they were just too dark and too reddish/burgundy for this look. Next time, I’d opt for pairing it with a medium-dark pink instead. The lip color was cool, just not with this look. I even tried to fix it, but no luck – only way to do it was to take it all off (which I hate to do!).

I used Soft Ochre paint pot all over lid, Dior Pink May Quint light peach on inner lid, Dior Pink May Quint light warm pink-purple on middle of lid, Dior Pink May Quint dark purple on outer lid and crease, Clue eyeshadow on outer crease, Dior Pink May Quint light white-gold above crease and on brow, Feline kohl power on lower lash line, and Dior Pink May Quint light white-gold on lower lash line. I wore Petalpoint blush with Micro Pink beauty powder to highlight and Sculpt sculpting powder to contour. I had Wild ‘Bout You lipstick with Crystal Rose lipglass on my lips in the first set. In the second set, I added Negligee lipglass and Backlit 3D glass.

Temptalia Asks You

What body products do you use regularly? Do you have a favorite body cream/lotion? A fan of sunless tanner? What makes your body bangin’?

I think I have a zillion and one body creams/lotions in my cabinets, so I just pull them out at random. I use Lush’s shower gel or Philosophy’s shower gel. I have to say… the body doesn’t get much else, LOL.
